Kansas Basketball and the Final Four

Danny Manning appears Tulsa bound |
“I’ll comment: ‘not done deal,’’’ Self said Wednesday night from New Orleans. “He’s had talks with them and interviewed. I know that he was very encouraged and excited about the prospect of it. It’s not done. It’s not done, but there are talks going on. Who knows what will happen next?”

’Mates respect Tyshawn Taylor |
I think this would be the easy part.

Barry Hinson introduced by Salukis |
“I’m gonna work for the University of Kansas until Monday night at 11 o’clock, if that’s OK with you,” Hinson said with a smile.

Big Easy come ... |
And I'm on my way today!

Davidson loss was a turning point for KU -
It was a film session that showed ugly truths. Kansas coach Bill Self saw a team with selfish thoughts. Conner Teahan looked at a team still trying to find itself.

Manning blocks out Tulsa talk -
And I absolutely believe him. None of this Hinson or Manning talk should be a distraction in the least. They are assistant coaches, this is what happens when you have success, but it's not as if this is Bill Self flirting with Okie Light or something silly like that. Who would do that? Media seems to be fishing for something here and I just don't see it.

Kansas' Robinson, Withey an invaluable duo for the Jayhawks - Pablo Torre -
There is a temptation to peg Thomas Robinson for a loner, to understand the Kansas junior's success as a function of tragedy and forced evolution. Part of it is visual: Robinson, a 20-year-old who averages 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, could be employed as LeBron James's body double. Andrea Hudy, the Jayhawks' strength and conditioning coach, attests that the 6-foot-9, 245-pounder, a projected top-five NBA Draft pick, can bench-press 300 pounds, clean 300, and parallel-squat close to 400.

OR, he could just take a seat where Barry Hinson used to sit and stay in Lawrence.

Top K-State basketball recruit says he’s not coming -
“I’m not out there actively chasing jobs,” Henson said. “I love where I’m at, I love working for Lon, but this K-State job is a whole different deal. I would love to go back there.”
